Fair Trade


Newcastle University was first recognised by the Fairtrade Foundation as a Fairtrade University in 2006. Our Fairtrade status is one of the ways in which the University can demonstrate its commitment to development in the Third World and to sustainability.

Fair Trade Cotton

Where we have identified workers clothing that is made from 100% cotton, such as the aprons worn by our catering staff, we have replaced these with Fairtrade cotton.
